Welcome to my Spanish Trails website

Lots of people go to Spain for the sunshine and the beaches. But Spain is full of wonderful mountain ranges, and is a paradise for hill walkers.

I have published a series of guide books, written in English, providing walks in several different areas of Spain.

The series title is SPANISH TRAILS. 

There are currently three editions:

        * the Picos De Europa in the north;

        * the Sierra Almijara and Tejeda in the south (the mountains  near Cómpeta and Nerja);

         * the Mountains of Madrid (the hills to the north west of the capital city).

For more details about my books, and how to buy them, visit the Publications page.
